Which milk is right for you? (1)

Skimmed, semi or full-fat?

Latest research reveals that skimmed milk may not necessarily be the healthiest option. Yes, it’s lower in fat and calories than whole milk, and marginally higher in calcium, but some experts suggest that the saturated fat in dairy may not be a problem in terms of heart health. In fact, by drinking skimmed we may be missing out on fat-soluble nutrients like vitamins A and E.

Semi-skimmed is low enough in fat to be a ‘low-fat’ food, but it also has lower levels of fat-soluble vitamins than full-fat milk. So make sure you get your fat-soluble vitamins from other sources, such as brightly coloured salad or veg served with an oil dressing.

Best for babies

The Department of Health recommends exclusively breastfeeding your baby for the first six months of life – after that you can continue to breastfeed alongside the introduction of your baby's first solid foods. From the age of one, whole cow’s milk may be offered as a drink. Semi-skimmed is an option from two years, and skimmed milk should only be given after five years of age. Always ask your GP or a dietitian for advice if you have queries about breastfeeding or your baby has a milk allergy – some alternatives, like soya drinks, may be unsuitable.

Choose the right one for you

Check our guide below for your best option. Whether you choose dairy milk or not, always include plenty of non-dairy sources of calcium in your diet, such as canned salmon and sardines, green leafy veg, nuts and seeds, including almonds and sesame seeds. Combine these foods with sources of vitamin D such as eggs and oily fish – vitamin D helps your body make the most of calcium.
